  • Neutral bathroom with Velux window and potted plants

    Temper neutral shades in the bathroom with addition of greenery to create a calming oasis. Velux windows will ensure that light floods through and bounces off white tiles. Wood accessories such as a bath caddy and a bathroom duckboard in place of a traditional bath mat add warmth.

  • Contemporary bathroom with tropical-print wallpaper

    Who said bathrooms had to be clean and clinical? This fabulous jungle pattern brings wow factor to the room, making morning showers even more invigorating. The owners have cleverly picked out the pink of the parrots in their choice of towels and accessories.

  • Modern bathroom with metro tiles and dark grout and wood-effect floor tiles

    If you want your bathroom to look traditional but on-trend, you can’t go wrong with metro tiles and dark grouting. To save money or achieve a softer look, tile the wall up to the halfway point and paint the top half in a soft grey. Add wood-effect floor tiles and a wooden toilet seat to break up the grey and white.

  • Cloakroom with Penguin Library wallpaper and blue mosaic splashback

    A cloakroom is the ideal spot for bold decor. It’s a small space so you can afford to pick bold wallpaper and strong hues that you’d hesitate to use elsewhere. This Penguin Library wallpaper works wonderfully, and the blue mosaic tiles above the sink add an extra splash of colour.

  • Classic bathroom with large-format tiles and corner bath

    Although it is a retro design idea, this corner bath gives this space a spa-like feel. Large-format tiles accentuate the size of this bathroom. A striped monochrome rug and open shelves give this room a contemporary update without distracting from the overall look.

  • Large en suite with rainwater shower

    Add warmth with natural wood. In this en suite shower room, oak floorboards and an oak-topped freestanding vanity stop the white scheme looking clinical. Grey grout adds interest to the white tiling, too. In an attic bathroom, place a rainwater shower head as high up as you can, even if it means it’s at the top of the ceiling.

  • Classic country bathroom with wood panelling and roll-top bath

    If you want to create a completely classic country bathroom, you won’t go far wrong with wood panelling. When it comes to varnish choices, a mid to darkish colour will keep the look traditional. Let the grains of the wood shine out for the best effect. Choose a pale-coloured bath for brightening contrast.

  • Luxe country bathroom with freestanding claw-foot bath

    Make the most of a sloped ceiling with a freestanding bath placed near a low-level window. Shutters are a great option, as they can be opened when you want to enjoy the view or shut when you want your privacy.

  • Grey bathroom with large freestanding bathtub

    A space-saving wall niche helps maintain the streamlined appearance of this bathroom. Wall-mounted taps also help to keep the look uncluttered by mundane pieces. Simple sophistication is the key, with beautiful tiling and a large tub just made for a good soak.

  • Roomy attic en suite with Velux window

    This spacious-feeling bathroom shows just how roomy an attic en suite can be. Even with sloped ceilings on both sides, the room manages to feel open and light. Choose a large bath instead of a shower, as you might struggle to find the head height.

  • Striking monochrome bathroom with glossy black bathtub

    This is a well-thought-out scheme that is designed to wow. But it’s not as complicated as it looks. Turning black and white checked tiles on their side to create a diamond-style pattern is a simple trick to add impact and interest. Meanwhile a fabulous tub and a hit of red have eye-catching properties all of their own.

  • Monochrome bathroom with hexagonal black tiles

    If you think your bathroom isn’t the place to make a statement, think again. Hexagonal black tiles create a really striking backdrop to the white fittings in this monochrome scheme. A gold mirror adds a beautifully luxe finishing touch.

  • Grey bathroom with vase of budding branches

    It doesn’t take much to jazz up a neutral bathroom. A vase full of budding branches ties in with the colour scheme here, creating interest without adding a colour hit to the space. A large vanity unit with lots of drawers keeps the marble worktop free from all but the essential and decorative.

  • Ultra compact wet room with wooden panelling

    A bathroom can be installed in the most tiny of spaces, as this ultra compact wet room shows. With a space-saving sink and no shower enclosure, the room has everything you need without feeling cramped. If you have a dog who likes muddy walks, this kind of arrangement works wonders in a boot room, too.

  • Narrow bathroom with space for a claw-foot bathtub

    Feeling restricted by the size of your bathroom? Then take a look at this photo for all the inspiration you need. Narrow it may be, but that doesn’t mean that the owners have gone for standard fittings. A claw-foot bath really does give this space the wow factor.

  • Neutral bathroom with pretty finishing touches

    Neutrals are a popular colour for bathrooms – they’re versatile and serene, so we can definitely see why. Sometimes you do just need to add a little something to them, though. That’s where pretty soaps, lotions and potions, flowers, and even jazzy-looking towels come in. Have fun with your neutral space is what we say.

  • Traditional cloakroom with damask wallpaper

    Get the perfect finish with traditional damask prints, period-style fittings and beautifully detailed antique-inspired mirrors. A downstairs cloakroom is a great place to experiment with pattern, as the space is generally quite small, so it won’t look over the top.

  • Stylish country bathroom with large cast-iron tub

    Who says that country style has to look humble? A huge cast-iron bath like this will definitely make a statement. On the windowsill, a relax sign adds a cool modern touch that serves as a reminder of the benefit of a long soak.
